Joanne Frances has always been a fan of both local and foreign brands of artisan soap, so it was no surprise that she learned and finally gave soap-making a try in 2018. At first, she only made the soaps for her household, with her mother selling some of the extras to her friends for a small price. Even though she earned enough money to sustain her hobby and her small business, she eventually had to drop this and go to Australia to study.
It was when the pandemic happened that she went back home, and finally decided to start her own brand – Sabon De Luna. “We had the idea to finally brand the ‘nameless’ soap that my mothers’ co-workers and our family’s closest friends were patronizing and missing since I left. I started making soaps again and sold bars since May,” she shared.
Sabon De Luna takes pride in creating soaps that are organic and handcrafted. Since she uses all-natural ingredients for her soaps, her catalogue varies from time to time, depending on whatever’s in season. Her soaps also have fun and playful designs, inspired by a friend who makes soaps for her family.
When it comes to her favorite variants, Joanna answered “Bastille”, a soap that’s made with 70% olive oil and a small amount of coconut oil. This particular item is good for everyone (including children!) as it’s both cleansing and moisturizing.
Check out her items below:
- Bastille and Special Creations: P250
- Castile (made upon request): P280
